Basics

A primary weapon is a piece of equipment used to deal damage. Depending on the weapon's details, it can be either melee or ranged, and deals one of various types of damage. The weapon's damage can be increased by a number of skills, including Smiting Prayers, Conjure Element skills, Preparations, and, for one effect, attack skills. The primary weapon is equipped in the character's right hand slot (sword background). Characters must equip a primary weapon in order to attack. A primary weapon can be customized in order to do more damage, but it will only be usable by that particular character (or that character's heroes).

A secondary weapon, also often referred to as "off-hand weapon/item", is an equipment that offers a supportive role in combat, often in the form of additional armor or energy. The secondary weapon is equipped in the character's left hand slot (shield background).

Certain types of weapons require two hands to wield. When equipped, the left hand slot will be darkened and have a red cross over it. A secondary weapon can still be equipped, but will have no effect whatsoever. Because equipped weapons do not take up space in the inventory, it is still recommended to equip a secondary weapon while wielding a two-handed primary weapon.

Weapons can have different magical Weapon upgrades and Weapon modifiers on them.

For details on how weapons inflict damage, see Damage.

For lists of available weapons, see Category:Weapons.

Obtaining Weapons

There are various ways to get a weapon in Guild Wars:

Equipping/Unequipping Weapons

To equip a weapon, drag and drop it to its weapon slot or any background area in the inventory panel. Alternately, just double-click on the weapon. If another weapon was originally equipped in the same slot, the two weapons will be swapped.

To unequip a weapon, drag it from the weapon slot and drop it over an empty slot in the inventory or storage. In explorable areas and missions, weapon can be unequipped by directly dropping it on the ground too.

Up to four Weapon Sets are available to quickly change the weapons equipped.

Equipment in general cannot be equipped or changed during the activation of a skill or the swing of an attack. Attempt to equip/change equipment during said action will not be queued, and must be reattempted after the previous action was completed.

If a weapon providing health or energy is unequipped, the health or energy provided by the item is removed. See energy and health for details.

What weapon to use for your profession

Linked Attribute

Every player can equip every weapon regardless of attribute levels.

Each kind of martial weapon is linked to a specific attribute, e.g. axes are linked to Axe Mastery. Increasing that attribute increases the damage dealt using that type of weapon as its inherent effect, see Damage calculation. Caster weapons have no such inherent damage modifying effect.

Most weapons have an attribute requirement to qualify for their stated base damage range; e.g. "Slashing Dmg: 7-19 (Requires 5 Axe Mastery)". If the character's rank in the required attribute does not meet the requirement, the equipment will function in one of two ways:

  • Collectors, crafter, quest reward, Bonus, or Unique weapons, will deal damage equal to the equivalent Starter Weapon. (e.g.. attempting to wield a Droknar's Sword (requirement 9) at 8 Swordsmanship will result in it dealing 2-3 damage like a Starter Sword)
  • If the weapon is a dropped item, it will deal half damage. For example, a max 6-28 axe will have a base damage range of 3-14 when you do not meet the Axe Mastery requirement for that weapon.

Only the damage range is attribute dependent; any mods on the weapon will still have their full stated effect regardless of your attribute rank.

A player wielding a Rune two-handed sword.

The Two-handed sword is one of the slowest but most powerful weapons in any metal set. It is a two-handed weapon, so it cannot be wielded with a shield, and is the only Free-to-play Melee weapon with this characteristic.

Two-handed swords are devastating in both Slash and Crush. Players should choose the primary slash against most opponents, and the secondary crush against opponents wearing plate armour, such as platebody and platelegs.

Players can buy two-handed swords in Gaius' Two Handed Shop in Taverley.

History and usage

The two-handed sword was the first choice of weapons in RuneScape Classic because there was no difference in speed between weapons, meaning someone could quickly and easily kill a player with this. After the transition to RuneScape 2, its popularity dropped because of the implementation of the aforementioned speed differences, making the Two handed Sword only capable of one strike in the time a scimitar could make two.

It is relatively common in F2P (Free To Play) player killing, where it is used to make finishing blows. Free to play rangers most often bring a two-handed sword to finish fights as they do not have a ranged weapon efficient in finishing blows. As a "surprise" weapon, it is similar to using the Obsidian maul, Granite maul, or Dragon dagger.

The old Rune Two Hand Sword with cape motion.

In a game update a while ago, the two-handed sword was given new, realistic, and more fluid animations. Before the major update, the two-handed swords were wielded in one hand leaning on the shoulder. About two years before that update they were held in one hand like a normal, right-handed weapon, and the hilts of the two-handed swords looked slightly different. However, Jagex improved this by giving it a more realistic look with actual two-handed wielding. Because of this, the price has increased, especially in the case of the Rune 2h sword, which some players were selling for as much as 90-100k (although the Exchange price is now about 58,000 coins). The two-handed sword is now the only weapon with different animations for every attack option. It is interesting to note that wielding any two-handed sword makes the player's cape (if any) billow in the breeze, a unique animation. NPCs that use two-handed swords often do not have the cape animation. Also, while wielding another weapon like a scimitar or battleaxe, the player seems to be right-handed (the weapon is held in the right hand). However, while wielding a two-handed sword, the player becomes left-handed (the sword is held closer to the left side and attack animations show a left-handed swing). Sometimes the game engine will reposition the sword so the player is holding it like a normal one-handed weapon. However, this only happens when the area that the player is in is very crowded, and the player must be standing still. It cannot happen during combat or normal activities.

Until an update in 2005,Two-Handed sword had a Stab attack style (Which was the "Accurate" style). Since It wasn't very logical for a person to stab with a heavy sword, Jagex later replaced it with a slash option.

Tibia

Up to date as of February 05, 2010

From TibiaWiki

Two-handed weapons cannot be used in conjunction with a shield. All the weapon classes have their own two-handed weapons. The Paladin's main weapons, the bow, crossbow, and arbalest are all two-handed.

There are currently no non-weapon items that require two hands.

Also, All two-handed swords can only be wielded by a knight.

Advantages and Disadvantages

Advantages

Two-handed swords are useful when increasing the hunting speed since they do a lot more damage than most one-handed weapons.

Disadvantages

While wielding a two-handed weapon, the player suffers more damage from monsters since no shield can be equipped and hence, the shielding skill does not increase.
